Hantu Laut


Out of action the past five days, down with food poisoning while in Phnom Penh.

Horrible! Horrible!

On drip for 12 hours at private hospital in Phnom Penh. The joke is, I think, got it from the 'baked moule' at one of the renowned French restaurants (can't name it, in case they sue me) in Phnom Penh.

Missed my Air Asia flight on Tuesday 8.35 a.m, ticket washed out. Luckily, with friend at MAS in Phnom Penh managed to catch MAS 11.15 a.m to KL same morning, spent two nights in KL to recuperate.

Left for Hanoi Thurday morning and staying at one of the hotels in the Old Quarters.Weather fantastic. Halong Bay on Monday.

Hanoi is gearing up for the big bash tonight.Can see huge preparations for the countdown all over the city with stages and huge sound systems erected in many places.

Is Selangor A Communist State?

Hantu Laut

If Malaysians think the BN is evil than they better watch out for this wolf in sheep's clothing which is slowly undressing itself to reveal the true colour of its coat.

Are these the people who promised good governance or a bare-knuckled administration?

Malaysians should start worrying about whether they are fit to be the alternative government as you can see they don't talk the talk and walk the walk.Bunch of twisters and liars.

I was taken aback when I read this article.

Is the 1 Malaysia poster or billboard obscene, racist or seditious in nature to justify its forceful removal? Did it in anyway contravened any of the by-laws of the council or was it a case of "absolute power corrupts absolutely"?

The Selangor Pakatan government is falling into the same quagmire that they accused the BN of, arbitrary abuse of power and worse they ignored the fact that 1 Malaysia is a national programme not a political party political agenda.It's supposed to encompass national unity.

To ban it just because the government of the day is the BN at Federal level and opposition in the state is unconstitutional.The BN government should drag the Selangor government to court before they put up more of such nonsense into practice.

Ronnie Liu, infantilised the issue demanding absolute righteousness in the Selangor government action of which he is the master mind, an initiated communist who believe in using strong arm tactic.Of course it is a political message, a message to unite the people which obviously is against the political agenda of DAP and Pakatan.

What happened to the Menteri Besar of Selangor has he merely become a rubber stamp to the DAP controlled Executive Council.

Is Sime Scrapping Bottom Of The Barrel?

Hantu Laut

I am not sure whether we should laud the action taken by Sime Darby against its executives and some of its former executives for its unprecedented whopping losses incurred the last year.

Is Sime looking for scapegoats? If it is than it may have looked in the wrong place.

What is the likelihood of recovering the money as the claim put forth is a pittance compared to the total loss and absurdly on the basis of accusation of mismanagement and incompetence and not misappropriation or corruption.

There is a clear distinction between the two.Mismanagement and incompetence are not criminal acts, misappropriation and corruption are.Sure, you can sue them for negligence which will be so tedious to prove.Was this action taken due to political pressure to appease the opposition?

The company also alleged that the five accused acted as a "decision-making unit" in the energy and utilities division and were responsible for the division's actions and omissions.

The question is what happened to Sime's Board of Directors, had they become redundant so much so that huge investments of capital nature are made by its executives and who select and approve the appointment of this bunch of incompetents?

Have the board not been negligent of its fiduciary duties to the shareholders. They are the trustees and the link between the shareholders and the executives.A company failure should be attributed more to the CEO and members of the board rather than its employees, putting asides wrongdoings of which the board should also take full responsibility.

A responsible board would have regular meetings to keep checks and balances.If such meetings are conducted regularly and board members are alert and responsible most problems could have been detected much earlier before they get out of hand.Obviously, the board is very much asleep leaving everything to the executives.

Why is it that every time a case like this came up the plaintiff or in the case of big corruption case the prosecutor always walk on weak ground?

Sime sued the five for breach of duties and asked for restitution of MR177 million.Why, only that amount when the total loss was MR2.1 million?Who is responsible for the bigger balance of losses?

The question again do the five have that kind of money considering how much Sime pay them every year?

Are there more cases in the pipeline or this will suffice to appease the public that the government is taking action.

We all know most GLCs are run by incompetents and they survived only when they have monopoly of the business, the moment the monopoly is removed and they have to compete on level playing know what follows.

If God Forbids Let Him Punish Them

Hantu Laut

This guy must be either too brave or too stupid to underestimate the environment he lives in.If your are not straight and live in a hypocritical world it would be safer to stay in the closet like most gays do.

Where I came from, homophobia or the pretext of homophobia citing religious values as the excuse for hostility is less pervasive or does not exist at all. Those who are aghast or repulsive at the thought of same sex cohabitation just frown, ignored and merrily stayed away from the anomaly.What they do with their bodies is their business.

I have gay friends, my wife has gay friends and my children have gay friends and not for one moment we felt our worlds are being threatened by our association with them particularly those that we grew up with from childhood.Whatever their sexual orientation is it's their business, they are still our friends and have not made us less secure in our own sexuality.If God forbids homosexuality than let God punish them.

It's true, all three Abrahamic religions were against homosexuality.The story of Sodom and Gomorrah revealed that Christianity was even more explicit in its prohibition against homosexuality but has come a long way to fast forward itself, denouncing it, without hostility or threat of bodily harm.

Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is an abomination.(Leviticus 18:22 KJV)
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.(Leviticus 20:13 KJV)

In the U.S many states still outlawed sodomy and is seen as a criminal act but the law has become purely academic. No one has been dragged to the court of law for being a homosexual. Surely, two consenting adults would not report their sexual acts to the law.As long as no aggrieved party made a report no law has been broken.The act can only be enforced in the case of sodomite rape.

I believe it is the same in Malaysia, the law against sodomy can only be used against a person if there was an aggrieved party that lodged a police report, as in the case of Anwar Ibrahim.

Are there no homosexuality in Islam? Muslims in this country need to travel to places like Afghanistan and the Middle East and if they open their eyes wide enough they be appalled and how good Malaysia is.In these places young boys literally become sexual slaves to their masters who are above the law.Some of these countries have the severest form of hudud law yet most of the forbidden acts and criminality escaped the attention of the law.

I, may be not comfortable with homosexuality, but I do, not in nihilism, believe in freedom of choice and if we do believe in God than we must believe he does not create all of us the same.

Wikileaks Has The Pandora's Box On Bank Of America

Hantu Laut

If you have dealt with BOA (Bank Of America) you get an inkling of what they are capable of doing.

They are so big even the U.S. government wouldn't dare to touch them or if they did, an imminent disaster, another financial meltdown which the U.S can't afford right now.

Read what I wrote here a few days ago and read this published today.

Another big embarrassment for the Obama's administration should Wikileaks decides to release the documents.

Wikileaks:Britain, Another Big Bully

Hantu Laut

Just like they created Israel out of Palestine, partitioned India into East and West Pakistan and made Sabah,Sarawak and Singapore to join Malaya to form a new nation, they are prepared to deny sovereignty of a nation if it serves its own interests or the interests of any of its allies.

Britain colluded with the U.S. to take the Chagos islands which include Diego Gracia away from Mauritius long before it gave independence.

See the photo why the U.S wants it as their naval base.

When Mauritius gained independence, Britain severed the island from Mauritius, evicted the settlers and gave it to the U.S as naval base.

The American spent zero sum to develop the harbour, it's a natural sheltered harbour, isolated and away from any immediate military threat.

If you want to know how Britain (formerly Great Britain) made and lost its empire read Niall Ferguson's "Empire" (How Britain Made The Modern World).Read it some 5 years ago and it's a book I would recommend all Federal leaders to read.

They can't call themselves 'great' anymore, having only scattered atolls all over the world as its colonies.

WikiLeaks cables: Mauritius sues UK for control of Chagos islands

Leaked document shows Foreign Office official told US that marine reserve would end evicted islanders' claims

The prime minister of Mauritius has accused Britain of pursuing a "policy of deceit" over the Chagos islands, its Indian Ocean colony from where islanders were evicted to make way for a US military base. He spoke to the Guardian as his government launched the first step in a process that could end UK control over the territory.

Navinchandra Ramgoolam spoke out after the Labour government's decision to establish a marine reserve around Diego Garcia and surrounding islands was exposed earlier this month as the latest ruse to prevent the islanders from ever returning to their homeland.

A US diplomatic cable dated May 2009, disclosed by WikiLeaks, revealed that a Foreign Office official had told the Americans that a decision to set up a "marine protected area" would "effectively end the islanders' resettlement claims". The official, identified as Colin Roberts, is quoted as saying that "according to the HMG's [Her Majesty's government's] current thinking on the reserve, there would be 'no human footprints' or 'Man Fridays'" on the British Indian Ocean Territory uninhabited islands."

A US state department official commented: "Establishing a marine reserve might, indeed, as the FCO's Roberts stated, be the most effective long-term way to prevent any of the Chagos Islands' former inhabitants or their descendants from resettling in the BIOT."

Nearly a year later, in April this year, David Miliband, then foreign secretary, described the marine reserve as a "major step forward for protecting the oceans". He added that the reserve "will not change the UK's commitment to cede the territory to Mauritius when it is no longer needed for defence purposes".

"I feel strongly about a policy of deceit," Ramgoolam said , adding that he had already suspected Britain had a "hidden agenda".

Asked if he believed Miliband had acted in good faith, he said: "Certainly not. Nick Clegg said before the general election that Britain had a "moral responsibility to allow these people to at last return home". William Hague, now foreign secretary, said that if elected he would "work to ensure a fair settlement of this long-standing dispute".

Ramgoolam said he believed the government was adopting the same attitude as its predecessor. Mauritius has lodged a document with an international tribunal accusing Britain of breaching the UN convention on the law of the sea. It says Britain has no right to establish the marine zone since it was not a "coastal state" in the region, adding that Mauritius has the sole right to declare an "exclusive zone" around the British colony.

A legal document seen by the Guardian and submitted to an international tribunal says that in 1965 Britain "dismembered Mauritius by purporting to establish a so-called 'British Indian Ocean Territory'". Eight years later, it "forcibly removed the entire indigenous population of the Chagos archipelago, comprising a community of approximately 2,000 persons calling themselves Ilois or Chagossians", the document says.

Referring to the leaked US cable, it adds that the UK has "violated the 1982 [UN] convention and rules of general international law …" It says Mauritius is basing its claims on additional international rules including "the principle of permanent sovereignty over natural resources".

Ramgoolam said: "We have a strong case". Asked if the move paves the way to the end of the British Indian Ocean colony, he replied: "We have a broad strategy." Mauritius would adopt a "step by step" approach. He added that the Americans at present needed the Diego Garcia base for reasons of "international security".Read more.

Malaysia's Morbid Anatomy

Hantu Laut

We are famous for our stinky public toilets, high road fatalities, corruptions and now a new addition to the morbid anatomy..... the most dangerous public transport in the world. Buses driven by nothing less than zombies.

The recent crash at Cameron Highland that claimed 27 lives is abominable.It's happening too often and the authorities are keeping a blind eye.

Only in Malaysia the minister of transport can still keep his job in spite of the long history of gory scenes of high road fatalities, frequent crashes of public buses killing many and crooked and rude taxi drivers in the capital city.

In countries where there are greater sense of moral shame the minister would have resigned or be removed for dereliction of duty. Here the minister is only interested who get what road building projects and abandoned his other sphere of responsibility.

Have you ever experienced having your taxi driver dozing off at the wheel? Kuala Lumpur are full of these completely doped up taxi drivers and I believe so are the bus drivers that have contributed to the frequent fatal crashes.Read here the horrifying crashes in less than a year.

What have our Road Transport Dept done to clamp down on this dangerous and disgraceful trends among public transport providers.Obviously, nothing.

Sleepy and druggy head drivers and badly maintained public buses are still allowed to ply our highways at breakneck speed and if the cops caught them, they are either let off because of their ethnicity or one of the things we are famous for which I need not emphasize here.

While our politicians are fighting tooth and nail on who should take Putrajaya next they forgot they have legal and moral obligations to protect the people.

Assange:The Rape, A "Honeytrap" ?

Hantu Laut

Read the article below and judge for yourself. The CIA has used this method before as entrapment to blackmail their victims.

I am a supporter of Julian Assange and Wikileaks and will make space for any news related to him and Wikileaks.

I support in what he did as most of the documents leaked were not of national security as claimed by the U.S but were kept secret to hide the trickery, treachery and dirty tactics of the U.S administration and to hide embarrassing vilification and bad-mouthing of world leaders by its diplomats.More documents will reveal how the U.S condoned and protected some corrupt regimes so long as they supported the U.S.

The Western powers particularly the United States must be exposed and vilified
of their double standard, double-dealing, espionage, murders, plots, conspiracies, bad behaviour and other wrong-doing. Some American lawmakers have even called for his murder and assassination, coming from so-called civilised and morally uplifted society, it makes one wonder, with such mentallity, are they really such creatures.

Who are the whistle blowers? Americans who are fed up with their own government double standard, hypocrisy and arrogance.A powerful state that goes around the world bullying small, poor and defenceless nations.

With the powers they have they are now using the banking system to destroy Wikileaks.Most major credit card companies,Pay Pal and lately Bank of America has withdrawn all dealings with Wikileaks.

I believe Wikileaks has documents to prove that BOA could be implicated in some shady dealings within the bank which the US government knew off but refrained from taking action.It's the biggest bank by assets and second biggest by market capitalisation.It has almost 100% relationship with Fortune 500 companies and a global and extensive private banking network that source funds globally for its clients' investments.Some of the funds may have come from undesirable sources.

Unseen police documents provide the first complete account of the allegations against the WikiLeaks founder

Documents seen by the Guardian reveal for the first time the full details of the allegations of rape and sexual assault that have led to extradition hearings against the WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange.

The case against Assange, which has been the subject of intense speculation and dispute in mainstream media and on the internet, is laid out in police material held in Stockholm to which the Guardian received unauthorised access.

Assange, who was released on bail on Thursday, denies the Swedish allegations and has not formally been charged with any offence. The two Swedish women behind the charges have been accused by his supporters of making malicious complaints or being "honeytraps" in a wider conspiracy to discredit him.

Assange's UK lawyer, Mark Stephens, attributed the allegations to "dark forces", saying: "The honeytrap has been sprung ... After what we've seen so far you can reasonably conclude this is part of a greater plan." The journalist John Pilger dismissed the case as a "political stunt" and in an interview with ABC news, Assange said Swedish prosecutors were withholding evidence which suggested he had been "set up."

However, unredacted statements held by prosecutors in Stockholm, along with interviews with some of the central characters, shed fresh light on the hotly disputed sequence of events that has become the centre of a global storm.

Stephens has repeatedly complained that Assange has not been allowed to see the full allegations against him, but it is understood his Swedish defence team have copies of all the documents seen by the Guardian. He maintains that other potentially exculpatory evidence has not been made available to his team and may not have been seen by the Guardian.

The allegations centre on a 10-day period after Assange flew into Stockholm on Wednesday 11 August. One of the women, named in court as Miss A, told police that she had arranged Assange's trip toSweden, and let him stay in her flat because she was due to be away. She returned early, on Friday 13 August, after which the pair went for a meal and then returned to her flat.

Her account to police, which Assange disputes, stated that he began stroking her leg as they drank tea, before he pulled off her clothes and snapped a necklace that she was wearing. According to her statement she "tried to put on some articles of clothing as it was going too quickly and uncomfortably but Assange ripped them off again". Miss A told police that she didn't want to go any further "but that it was too late to stop Assange as she had gone along with it so far", and so she allowed him to undress her.

According to the statement, Miss A then realised he was trying to have unprotected sex with her. She told police that she had tried a number of times to reach for a condom but Assange had stopped her by holding her arms and pinning her legs. The statement records Miss A describing how Assange then released her arms and agreed to use a condom, but she told the police that at some stage Assange had "done something" with the condom that resulted in it becoming ripped, and ejaculated without withdrawing.

When he was later interviewed by police in Stockholm, Assange agreed that he had had sex with Miss A but said he did not tear the condom, and that he was not aware that it had been torn. He told police that he had continued to sleep in Miss A's bed for the following week and she had never mentioned a torn condom.

On the following morning, Saturday 14 August, Assange spoke at a seminar organised by Miss A. A second woman, Miss W, had contacted Miss A to ask if she could attend. Both women joined Assange, the co-ordinator of the Swedish WikiLeaks group, whom we will call "Harold", and a few others for lunch.

Assange left the lunch with Miss W. She told the police she and Assange had visited the place where she worked and had then gone to a cinema where they had moved to the back row. He had kissed her and put his hands inside her clothing, she said.

That evening, Miss A held a party at her flat. One of her friends, "Monica", later told police that during the party Miss A had told her about the ripped condom and unprotected sex. Another friend told police that during the evening Miss A told her she had had "the worst sex ever" with Assange: "Not only had it been the world's worst screw, it had also been violent."

Assange's supporters point out that, despite her complaints against him, Miss A held a party for him on that evening and continued to allow him to stay in her flat.

On Sunday 15 August, Monica told police, Miss A told her that she thought Assange had torn the condom on purpose. According to Monica, Miss A said Assange was still staying in her flat but they were not having sex because he had "exceeded the limits of what she felt she could accept" and she did not feel safe.

The following day, Miss W phoned Assange and arranged to meet him late in the evening, according to her statement. The pair went back to her flat in Enkoping, near Stockholm. Miss W told police that though they started to have sex, Assange had not wanted to wear a condom, and she had moved away because she had not wanted unprotected sex. Assange had then lost interest, she said, and fallen asleep. However, during the night, they had both woken up and had sex at least once when "he agreed unwillingly to use a condom".

Early the next morning, Miss W told police, she had gone to buy breakfast before getting back into bed and falling asleep beside Assange. She had awoken to find him having sex with her, she said, but when she asked whether he was wearing a condom he said no. "According to her statement, she said: 'You better not have HIV' and he answered: 'Of course not,' " but "she couldn't be bothered to tell him one more time because she had been going on about the condom all night. She had never had unprotected sex before."

The police record of the interview with Assange in Stockhom deals only with the complaint made by Miss A. However, Assange and his lawyers have repeatedly stressed that he denies any kind of wrongdoing in relation to Miss W.

In submissions to the Swedish courts, they have argued that Miss W took the initiative in contacting Assange, that on her own account she willingly engaged in sexual activity in a cinema and voluntarily took him to her flat where, she agrees, they had consensual sex. They say that she never indicated to Assange that she did not want to have sex with him. They also say that in a text message to a friend, she never suggested she had been raped and claimed only to have been "half asleep".

Police spoke to Miss W's ex-boyfriend, who told them that in two and a half years they had never had sex without a condom because it was "unthinkable" for her. Miss W told police she went to a chemist to buy a morning-after pill and also went to hospital to be tested for STDs. Police statements record her contacting Assange to ask him to get a test and his refusing on the grounds that he did not have the time.

On Wednesday 18 August, according to police records, Miss A told Harold and a friend that Assange would not leave her flat and was sleeping in her bed, although she was not having sex with him and he spent most of the night sitting with his computer. Harold told police he had asked Assange why he was refusing to leave the flat and that Assange had said he was very surprised, because Miss A had not asked him to leave. Miss A says she spent Wednesday night on a mattress and then moved to a friend's flat so she did not have to be near him. She told police that Assange had continued to make sexual advances to her every day after they slept together and on Wednesday 18 August had approached her, naked from the waist down, and rubbed himself against her.

The following day, Harold told police, Miss A called him and for the first time gave him a full account of her complaints about Assange. Harold told police he regarded her as "very, very credible" and he confronted Assange, who said he was completely shocked by the claims and denied all of them. By Friday 20 August, Miss W had texted Miss A looking for help in finding Assange. The two women met and compared stories.

Harold has independently told the Guardian Miss A made a series of calls to him asking him to persuade Assange to take an STD test to reassure Miss W, and that Assange refused. Miss A then warned if Assange did not take a test, Miss W would go to the police. Assange had rejected this as blackmail, Harold told police.

Assange told police that Miss A spoke to him directly and complained to him that he had torn their condom, something that he regarded as false.

Late that Friday afternoon, Harold told police, Assange agreed to take a test, but the clinics had closed for the weekend. Miss A phoned Harold to say that she and Miss W had been to the police, who had told them that they couldn't simply tell Assange to take a test, that their statements must be passed to the prosecutor. That night, the story leaked to the Swedish newspaper Expressen.

By Saturday morning, 21 August, journalists were asking Assange for a reaction. At 9.15am, he tweeted: "We were warned to expect 'dirty tricks'. Now we have the first one." The following day, he tweeted: "Reminder: US intelligence planned to destroy WikiLeaks as far back as 2008."

The Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet asked if he had had sex with his two accusers. He said: "Their identities have been made anonymous so even I have no idea who they are. We have been warned that the Pentagon, for example, is thinking of deploying dirty tricks to ruin us."

Assange's Swedish lawyers have since suggested that Miss W's text messages – which the Guardian has not seen – show that she was thinking of contacting Expressen and that one of her friends told her she should get money for her story. However, police statements by the friend offer a more innocent explanation: they say these text messages were exchanged several days after the women had made their complaint. They followed an inquiry from a foreign newspaper and were meant jokingly, the friend stated to police.

The Guardian understands that the recent Swedish decision to apply for an international arrest warrant followed a decision by Assange to leave Sweden in late September and not return for a scheduled meeting when he was due to be interviewed by the prosecutor. Assange's supporters have denied this, but Assange himself told friends in London that he was supposed to return to Stockholm for a police interview during the week beginning 11 October, and that he had decided to stay away. Prosecution documents seen by the Guardian record that he was due to be interviewed on 14 October.

The co-ordinator of the WikiLeaks group in Stockholm, who is a close colleague of Assange and who also knows both women, told the Guardian: "This is a normal police investigation. Let the police find out what actually happened. Of course, the enemies of WikiLeaks may try to use this, but it begins with the two women and Julian. It is not the CIA sending a woman in a short skirt."

Assange's lawyers were asked to respond on his behalf to the allegations in the documents seen by the Guardian on Wednesday evening. Tonight they said they were still unable obtain a response from Assange.

Assange's solicitor, Mark Stephens, said: "The allegations of the complainants are not credible and were dismissed by the senior Stockholm prosecutor as not worthy of further investigation." He said Miss A had sent two Twitter messages that appeared to undermine her account in the police statement.

Assange's defence team had so far been provided by prosecutors with only incomplete evidence, he said. "There are many more text and SMS messages from and to the complainants which have been shown by the assistant prosecutor to the Swedish defence lawyer, Bjorn Hurtig, which suggest motivations of malice and money in going to the police and to Espressen and raise the issue of political motivation behind the presentation of these complaints. He [Hurtig] has been precluded from making notes or copying them.

"We understand that both complainants admit to having initiated consensual sexual relations with Mr Assange. They do not complain of any physical injury. The first complainant did not make a complaint for six days (in which she hosted the respondent in her flat [actually her bed] and spoke in the warmest terms about him to her friends) until she discovered he had spent the night with the other complainant.

"The second complainant, too, failed to complain for several days until she found out about the first complainant: she claimed that after several acts of consensual sexual intercourse, she fell half asleep and thinks that he ejaculated without using a condom – a possibility about which she says they joked afterwards.

Keeping Assange For Uncle Sam ?

Hantu Laut

Julian Assange has been released on bail.His hearing for extradition to Sweden on highly suspicious rape charges would takes months if not years.Since when having sex without using a condom becomes a crime.Was it a setup?

The question is was Sweden really interested in him or was it infuriated Uncle Sam that wanted him badly?

Assange's Wikileaks has communicated to the entire world some very unflattering and embarrassing documents that cried out loud and clear the arrogance and condescending ways of the U.S. administration and its atrocious and boggy foreign policy.

Uncle Sam looked at the rest of the world with disdain, particularly less developed countries.

Already dozens of U.S. lawmakers were screaming for his blood some asking him to be charged under the Espionage Act.This act provides for capital punishment and hefty jail term on those found guilty.Some have called for his assassination.

The irony is, in spite of the U.S. having Freedom of Information Act that allow full or partial disclosure of unreleased information and documents controlled by the government it can simply chose any document including non-sensitive but embarrassing information as classified items.

Are some of its communiques between its embassies and the State Department that portrayed world leaders in a bad light justified being classified information or were they kept classified to avoid embarrassment?

The world is watching how Britain handles the extradition.The U.S has not formally asked for his extradition.Most extradition are for serious crime or felony.Assange alleged crime is likely to be of political nature for which no extradition is available.

Britain may or may not extradite him to Sweden unless the Swedes have infallible case built against him.

Uncle Sam has already worked out how to get Assange to its soil.

Sweden may be easier to bully than Britain.

Lee Kuan Yew's Psychopathic North Korean.

From Wikileaks

"They are psychopathic types, with a 'flabby old chap' for a leader who prances around stadiums seeking adulation," said the document, classified as secret.

In the document detailing a conversation between Lee and US deputy secretary of state James B. Steinberg in May last year, Singapore's elder statesman said he would be surprised if the North Koreans agreed to give up their nuclear weapons.

Singapore's founding father Lee Kuan Yew called North Koreans "psychopathic" and leader Kim Jong-Il a "flabby old chap" who craved public worship, a US diplomatic cable released by WikiLeaks said.

Singapore's first prime minister who now holds the title of minister mentor in the cabinet compared the plight of North Koreans to his experiences living through the Japanese occupation of his country during World War II.

"MM Lee noted that he had learned from living through three and a half years of Japanese occupation in Singapore that people will obey authorities who can deny them food, clothing and medicine," the leaked document read.

Nuclear-armed North Korea might also give up its "first-strike capacity" but would keep its atomic weapons "in case the USG (US government) decides to seek a regime change," the cable read.

Lee also said he believed that Japan may "go nuclear" in response to North Korea's actions.

Lee told Steinberg that China would prefer a nuclear-armed North Korea than a North Korea that has collapsed because it sees the country as a buffer state.

"If China has to choose, Beijing sees a North Korea with nuclear weapons as less bad for China than a North Korea that has collapsed," Lee said, according to the account.

If North Korea failed, South Korea "would take over in the North and China would face a US presence at its border," the cable said of Lee's views.

Cry Rape:The Most Wanted Man Who Raped America Naked.

Hantu Laut

If it were to happen anywhere in Asia or Africa, the West would be screaming their heads off calling it blatant violation of human rights, state abuse of the free flow of information and judiciary running a kangaroo court.

What happened to Julian Assange?

Was he given a fair hearing? Did the English court adhere to the rules of law and natural justice.What happened to the English legal doctrine that protects against arbitrary exercise of power by ensuring fair play.

The English legal system clearly stated that no accused, or a person directly affected by a decision, shall be condemned unless given full chance to prepare and submit his case and rebuttal to the opposing party's arguments.

Why was Assange refused bail for a presumptuous and highly suspicious rape charges that manifested only after the release of Wikileaks documents to the world that have embarrassed the United States government and its allies.

The American are known for hiding wrongdoings of its military in war zones.

The famous "My Lai Massacre" during the Vietnam War was one such atrocities that prompted widespread outrage throughout the world.Mass murder conducted by a unit of the U.S. Army on defenceless civilians majority of whom were women, children and the elderly.Many of the victims were sexually abused, beaten and tortured.

If you believe in American justice than you may be the greatest fool and an incurable idiot.Of all the soldiers involved only one was convicted and the sentence ??? .....3 years under house arrest.

These are the very same people who killed innocent civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan, trampled on the Geneva Convention on the treatment of prisoners whom they conveniently decide to brand as terrorists instead of as prisoners of war and accorded them the rights under the Convention.

These are the same people who make noise about the sodomy trail of Anwar Ibrahim and accused Malaysia of violation of human rights.

Was Assange given sufficient chance to present his case before he was found guilty by the court by denying him bail for what normally is a bailable offence. Was his crime any worse than murder where if the police or court deemed fit, bail was never denied. Many suspected rapists have been released on bail while awaiting their court cases.What makes Assange's case any different from the rest?

Assange has blown wide open to the world the cloak of secrecy, hypocrisy and double standards of the Western powers and he'll have to pay a heavy price for his intrusion into their secret and wicked domain.

For going against the powers that be, their dirty works, their scandalous manipulations of third world leaders and world politics, murder and blatant abuse of human rights in the war zones and their murderous wars to re-colonise certain parts of the world under the pretext of fighting terrorism, even the prestigious English court has succumbed to the hegemonic influence of the United States. The pre-trail detention of Assangee is unconstitutional.Is he such a dangerous criminal that justified denial of his rights.

Even worse, in his recent hearing for bail the English court after allowing him bail refused to release him while awaiting appeal from the prosecution which they claimed would come in the next 48 hours.

Isn't it absurd that after having given bail you can still detain a person? Was it flawed English law or a judge flawed in judgement?

Most suspected rapists get bail but Assangee crime seems worse than normal rape cases. Look at what the English court decision on what should have been the rule of law...a man is innocent until proven guilty.... but Assangee, who voluntarily surrendered to the police, is considered worse than a dangerous felon.

Bail was set at $310,000.Assange must spend every night at his given address and will be electronically tagged so the police can track his movements, subjected to curfew every day from 10 p.m to 2 a.m and from 10 a.m to 2 p.m and is required to report daily to the police from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.The police have also taken away his passport as under the terms of his bail he is not allowed to travel abroad.

Now, you can scorn the British judges, for succumbing to America's pressure that Assangee is a dangerous threat to the world, a kind of rapist/terrorist who raped naked the most powerful nation on earth.

Obviously, looking at the detention order, Mr Assange is held for treason and not for rape?

Now, you can also laugh at the West for what is clearly their double standards and hypocrisy?

Sweden was only a tool to get Assange on what obviously was a politically motivated crime made against him.The real culprit is the United States.

We should thanks Julian Assange and Wikileaks for exposing the misdeeds, murders and atrocities committed by the the rich and powerful nations particularly the United States.

Release on Bail of WikiLeaks Founder Is Delayed by Appeal

LONDON — After a week in detention facing possible extradition,Julian Assange, the founder of the WikiLeaks antisecrecy group, was ordered released on $310,000 bail by a court on Tuesday as he challenges a Swedish prosecutor’s demand that he return to Stockholm for questioning about alleged sex offenses.

However, Mr. Assange remained in custody pending a hearing on an appeal by the prosecutor, which would take place within the next 48 hours.

In granting bail, Judge Howard Riddle ordered that Mr. Assange appear again in court on Jan. 11. He also said that between then and now he must reside at Ellingham Hall, a Georgian mansion in Bungay, in eastern England, owned by Vaughan Smith, the founder of a club for journalists. Mr. Assange must spend every night at the mansion and will be electronically tagged so the police can track his movements, the judge said. Read more.

Wikileaks Never Mentioned Malaysian Special Branch As The Source

M'sia ex deputy PM Anwar Ibrahim 'did commit sodomy' - WikiLeaks

Singapore's intelligence services as well as its minister mentor Lee Kuan Yew believe that opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim "did indeed commit the acts for which he is currently indicted".

This was revealed by WikiLeaks through a release of a US State Department cable issued in Nov 2008.
The cable was exclusively released to the Australian tabloid, The Sun-Herald, and was widely reported by other Australian newspapers yesterday.

WikiLeaks is a website that publishes anonymous submissions and leaks of sensitive governmental, corporate, organisational or religious documents, while attempting to preserve the anonymity and untraceability of its contributors.

The US State Department cable that dealt with Anwar's sodomy case, dated Nov 2008, and was released exclusively to The Sun-Herald by WikiLeaks, had stated: "The Australians said that Singapore's intelligence services and (Singapore elder statesman) Lee Kuan Yew had told Australia's Office of National Assessments (ONA) in their exchanges that opposition leader Anwar 'did indeed commit the acts for which he is currently indicted'."
In the newspaper report, it said the document stated that the Singaporeans told ONA that they made this assessment on the basis of "technical intelligence", which was likely to relate to intercepted communications.

In a posting on Twitter yesterday, Anwar denied the allegations.

Hantu Laut's comment.

(Anwar was quick to jump the gun and blamed the Malaysian Special Branch for the exposure, which was never mentioned in Wikileaks released documents.It mentioned "technical intelligence" related to intercepted communication" and former Singapore Premier Lee Kuan Yew's assertion with ONA (Australia's Office of National Assessment) about Anwar's indiscretion.

When you are going to be the next prime minister of a nation you wouldn't know who is interested in your extracurricular activities and putting you under surveillance.

Most Western nations have their sleuth-hounds all over the place tracking world leaders and would-be world leaders.

Singapore, have all the reasons for sleuthing on our leaders, their peaceful future and co-existence rest on level-headed leaders running the country.
